N.Y.C., 1970

The "Women's Strike for Equality" march.
I taped all the speeches--Kate Millett, Bella Abzug--
but nothing came out clear except Betty Friedan saying:

"We, today ... have learned
the power of our Sisterhood!"

And we did! I'm so glad we made the trip--even though at times
I didn't think we were going to make it in Edie's
old VW. It was worth risking our lives. I think the only thing that
kept that old junkheap moving was Edie singing
"Ain't No Mountain High Enough"
at the top of her lungs.

We've been on a high since we got here. Giddy, in face.
But I can't wait to get back to L.A. We're going to form
a consciousness-raising group just like
thousands of women all over the country are doing.
